SOURCE: tuff start ,then no start
If fuel filter hasn't been changed lately I would start with that, as well as adding some gasline antifreeze with moisture remover, or "heet" (brand name). do you always re-fuel at same place? Not sure where your at, but you did say, cold, so moisture in your tank, from warm & cold temperatures would definately cause problems similar to what your experiencing. Do you hear any hum from rear of car when you cycle key to on, but not start, if yes, turn it off & back on, 2 or 3 times & listen for same, then try to start & see if it makes a difference. Try the additive first, as I said, but if that doesn't do it, try to get a fuel pressure test done before & after filter change, or ideal would be when it won't start, as we all know, it won't do when mechanic has it. Let's hope filter cures it.

My suggestion to this is to check the basics. Check fuel pressure and check spark during crank. There is no quick answer for a no start condition. You always have to start by checking the basics. An engine with no spark or fuel will not start every time.
